A New Revolution In Higher Education – Adam Braun, MissionU

Attending college in the United States comes at a price. It feels almost – dare I say – criminal to me.

We tell students that you have to go to college if you want to get a good job – so you go to college, take on a ton of student debt or work yourself crazy to pay for college – and then you graduate…and then there aren’t jobs that will pay a salary worthy of your student loan bill. It doesn’t feel right to me…but I don’t know what the solution is really.

On This Podcast Episode:

I want to introduce you to a new alternative to higher education, Adam Braun, who started MissionU to change our broken education system and offer a fresh approach to learning. Imagine going to school without the burden of student loans and having companies like Lyft, Spotify, and Warby Parker help develop the curriculum and have early access to hire graduates.

I’m dishing all things MissionU with Adam in this podcast episode and uncovering why he’s so motivated and inspired to take on an old broken education system

Building A Business One T-Shirt At A Time- Adam Mieuli Atlas Threads

Do you suffer from the “over packing syndrome” just like I do? Adam Mieuli from Atlas Threads decided to do something about it and create a way to travel lighter on the road. He has created the perfect t-shirt for travel – and quite possibly the best possible t-shirt you can own –  with a goal of replacing three t-shirts you pack for your next trip. Say what?

 

Adam became an entrepreneur out of frustration, which is one of the best ways you can build a business. You find a need that you don’t feel is being addressed and find a solution. Whether it’s a society or cultural issue or something as seemingly simple (yet so needed) as creating the perfect travel t-shirt.

  • We’re chatting with Adam about his vision for Atlas Threads
  • His motto is “Keep Going” – find out how he’s infusing that into each t-shirt
  • Find out how Kickstarter is helping Atlas Threads build their business dreams
  • I’m sharing some of my favorite tips to anyone that wants to start a business of their own
